Big Data in Medicine Conference – Exemplars and Opportunities in Data Science
19th June 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Join Cambridge-based researchers from all Schools of the University and local research institutes, at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, on 19 June.
From human genetics and pathogen genomics to routine clinical documentation, from internal imaging to motion capture, from digital epidemiology to pharmacokinetics, and from treatment pathways to life course assessment, the big Vs of Big Data – volume, variety, velocity and veracity – abound in medicine. Statistical, mathematical, visualisation, and computational approaches from a wide range of disciplines, as well systems for innovative ICT-based interventions are needed to keep apace of the complexity in Big Data and to advance medicine.
Patrick Maxwell (Regius Professor of Physic and Head of the School of Clinical Medicine) and Keith McNeil (Chief Executive Officer, Cambridge University Hospitals Foundation Trust) will address the meeting, with Ewan Birney (Associate Director, European Bioinformatics Institute) confirmed to speak. More speakers will be added to the website in due course.
